"I believe the reason conventional medicine fares so poorly with fibromyalgia is that (unlike alternative medicine), the hurried primary care physician or rheumatologist does not establish a relationship with the patient and has little time to explore significant biographical issues. With fibromyalgia, these issues can go back for decades. Although the diagnosis itself is fairly easy, conventional medicine's focus on "disease" rather than "person" will automatically miss the unique biography of each individual patient."   David Edelberg, M.D.
